Great location! Hotel was nice and clean. We had a beautiful corner room in the executive tower. We stayed 2 nights and we're able to walk to shopping and restaurants. We saw Teatro ZinZanni Friday night and it was a quick Uber ride to the theater district. We could have walked if it wasn't so cold out. Hotel staff was very nice. Bonus to have Starbucks right in the building too! The pool area is beautiful. Great experience overall. (Maybe bring earplugs if city noise and sirens will wake you).

My family and I stayed at the property for a New Year's Eve trip to Chicago. I am an IHG Rewards member, and have generally had good experiences with IHG hotels. This hotel gave me a literal headache. ||1) The first room that we were given had NO drawers for your clothes. ZERO. I am an IHG Rewards member, and was shocked. And even if I wasn't an IHG Rewards member, how in the world is there a hotel room that exists with no drawers for your clothes? Living out of suitcases on the floor with small children is exhausting and definitely not a vacation vibe.|2) We decided to extend our stay because we realized the kids did not have to go back to school as soon as we thought, and they were asking for a trip to the American Girl Doll store. The hotel graciously upgraded us to a much bigger, nicer room (with drawers!) for our stay. We moved our things into the room, and then the electricity went out in our room. We had to call for help and sat in the dark in the meantime.|3) After getting the room upgrade, we were told that we couldn't stay in the room for another night. We had to move to another room. Why would they upgrade us to this room if we could not stay for the entirety of the extension of our stay?|4) This may sound dumb, but please bear with me--during our last day, my husband and I arranged our day of shopping, packing, etc. so that I could go see the live Jazz band advertised. I called down in the afternoon and was told where to go to see the Jazz band. After showering, dressing, and putting on makeup, I went down, and the band was not there. I went to the front desk to ask where the band was, and Rahim at the front desk informed me that I had been given incorrect information, and there would be no jazz music tonight. |5) The actual room service hours listed on the signs in the elevators are not the actual times for room service, as we unfortunately learned when we called for room service and were told that it was not available. ||Every experience at this hotel was a headache! Three hotel room moves during a "vacation", and so many other annoyances along the way. Would not recommend.
